Ingredients

Directions

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in the flour, and cook for 3 minutes, whisking constantly. Whisk in the green onion, and cook for 1 minute more. Pour in the chicken broth, celery, parsley, and pepper; bring to a simmer, and cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Dissolve the cornstarch in a little milk, and add to the simmering soup along with the remaining milk. Cook, whisking frequently, until the soup has thickened and has returned to a simmer, about 8 minutes.

I like the idea of garlic. Will try some next time I make it. Just be very careful not to let it boil or get close to boiling once you have added the milk because after that your soup will curdle. Nice slow heat should be used once you add the milk. Note to self...try adding a bay leaf and remove later.

This was ok. I'm a HUGE Escargot fan and was excited to find a new way to cook them than just the traditional butter and garlic sauce. However I felt like I was missing something. Soup was still good and I will make again but I'm thinking maybe I'll add some pressed garlic and some garlic salt to it next time to add a little flavor... just feel like it needs something else...

i have not made this yet so my rating is based on how i think it will taste - but it sounds delicious. just off the top of my head tho' i would definitely add a clove or 2 of garlic-grated or minced and sauteed in butter-and very important...throw in a bay leaf while cooking and remove before serving-these 2 items will really add to the flavor of the snails.i plan to make this tonite for dinner.-Carina

Adjusting the flavor. Powerful results! How? Yes sauteed garlic but also a balance of salt & sugar some pepper a tiny pinch of thyme and a gob of dry mustard (I just kept putting in more dry mustard until I was finally satisfied)..... oh and the Deutcherin in me came out when I put in some potato flakes after the mustard was finally 'in place'........ MADE THIS UP AHEAD OF TIME IN THE CROCKPOT AFTER BROWNING THE FLOUR IN THE BUTTER JUST A TAD..... (at the end I worked in the cornstarch by mixing it into the sour cream but since we used potato flakes we probably could have simply put the sour cream in with the snails sans cornstarch) - - WE PUT IN THE ESCARGOT and fluid DURING THE LAST 15 MINUTES. - - - note to self do not use that much butter next time....... maybe half as much or a bit less.......

It was too bland for my taste so when I made it again I put in garlic about a quarter cup of some leftover chopped mushroom stems and substituted sweet onions and dinosaur kale- finely chopped as I had no parsley and green onions. My adult son loved it; my granddaughter had a few bites and said she was full from other food she eaten and I needed to get more flavor so I put in 1 teaspoon of Eden ume plum vinegar in my soup bowl and it "hit the spot" for me.
